Metal Oxide RRAM, H.-S. Philip Wong et al

Professor Philip Wong of Stanford University was kind enough to point me to a review article he and his collaborators have recently published in the Proceedings of the IEEE (full reference below). This must be one of the most comprehensive reviews of binary metal oxide based RRAM for non-volatile memory. The paper is comprehensive (155 …

I spotted a news item recently that Panasonic plan to start sampling a micro-controller (MCU) with an ReRAM memory (manufactured with 180nm technology on 200mm wafers). I should add that my Japanese is non-existent so this may well be incorrect but nonetheless it is another indication that the special properties of ReRAM/CBRAM will surely find …

Are We There Yet? Is New Memory Cost/Bit Equal to DRAM Yet? – Bob Merritt

Are We There Yet? Is New Memory Cost/Bit Equal to DRAM Yet?

In 2003, we organized and presented one of the earliest conferences on new and emerging memory technologies. At the conclusion of those presentations, one of the first questions from the audience seems to have been repeated in every conference on this topic since then. “When will the cost per bit of the new technology compete …

More News, May 2012

Looking at some of the smaller companies engaged with CBRAM and ReRAM, Blog sponsor Adesto Technologies is an obvious place to start. Teamed up with Altis semiconductor, Adesto have published interesting data on CBRAM integrated with CMOS in working memory arrays. We plan to return this development in a future Blog entry. Unity Semiconductor is …

Will RRAM save Moore’s law? There’s a US $100B market at stake. The 2012 International Memory Workshop (IMW) was the best IMW thus far. Not sure if it was the quality of the papers which was excellent, the well organized workshop, or Milano Italy being the location. Let’s just say it was the combination. The …

News, May 2012

It seems that barely a day goes by without an announcement related to ReRAM or CBRAM product related developments. In this entry, I’m going to restrict myself to news coming out of the larger companies prior to the start of this Blog. For these companies, most announcements reveal a significant level of integration and working …
